Devastated But Not Destroyed

The news I’d just received crushed me.

A dear friend made a destructive decision that I couldn’t understand. It wasn’t in keeping with her character. It wasn’t something I ever dreamed she could do.

I cried and tried to pray, but honestly, I felt like God was distant at that moment.

But then one simple verse cut through my thoughts with crystal clarity, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

I heard it over and over. It was the Holy Spirit holding me together when circumstances were tearing me apart.

Satan will always want us to believe the lie that if our circumstances fall apart, then so will we.

But take it from a woman in the middle of my own hard reality: Satan is a liar. God is a redeemer, a healer, the Author of Hope, the great I AM.
